The stars were out on the evening of June 15 for the Steve Miller Band concert at the San Diego County Fair Grandstand. Earlier, the stars were inside the famed Turf Club, scene of the annual Don Diego Scholarship Foundation Gala.

Since 1986, the Foundation has awarded more than $600,000 in college scholarships and grants for agricultural education.

Before settling in their VIP concert seats to rock out with the band, famous for such songs as “Fly Like an Eagle,” some 200 people – including local notables– enjoyed cocktails, silent auction, gourmet dinner, and introduction of 2013 scholars Brooke Buckley, Matt Kelly and Scott Jacobson, each of whom received a $5,000 scholarship.

Unable to be at the event, Tessa Adler, first in her Pt. Loma class and bound for Yale, received $5,000 plus the first $5,000 Spanjian scholarship for a total of $10,000.

Among the guests were Del Mar Councilmembers Lee Haydu, Don Mosier and Sherryl Parks, as well as Mayor Emeritus Richard Earnest with his wife, Jackee; current and former 22nd District Agricultural Association (22nd DDA) and/or Don Diego Board members including Adam Day, Fred Schenk, Allan Royster and Bob Vice; Fairgrounds CEO/Don Diego President Tim Fennell; Josh Rubenstein of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, the Gala’s platinum sponsor; and many other people whose names and business/society affiliations are well known throughout the region.
